The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines play Saturday afternoon at Michigan Stadium in The Game.

Barrett is completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 668 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions. Barrett has five touchdown passes in his last three games. Michael Thomas and Jalin Marshall have combined for 1,076 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while Braxton Miller has 23 receptions.

The Michigan Wolverines can win double-digit games for the first time since the 2011 season. Jake Rudock is completing 64.4 percent of his passes for 2,476 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Rudock has eight touchdown passes in his last two games.

The Buckeyes are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in November and 39-16-1 ATS in their last 56 road games. The Wolverines are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Buckeyes are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Michigan and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings overall.
This did look like a great game until Ohio State lost to Michigan State. Now, you have Buckeyes calling out the playcallers and already declaring for the NFL draft. The Buckeyes aren't exactly thrilled heading into rivalry week. Meanwhile, Michigan continues to be a rock defensively and is pleased with reaching a big bowl game. I see the Wolverines flat out crushing the Buckeyes.
Michigan by double digits.
